If the men’s national team defeats India once again and advances to the quarterfinals, it will face one of Slovenia (12th), Denmark (19th), or Hungary (30th).

In the semifinals, they will meet the world’s strongest team, China (No. 1).

China boasts a stellar lineup of players, including world ranked 1st to 5th place Fan Zhendong, Wang Chuqin, Ma Rong, Liang Jingkun, and Lin Gaoyuan.

Jang Woo-jin (14th), Lim Jong-hoon (18th, Korea Exchange), ‘veteran’ Lee Sang-soo (27th, Samsung Life Insurance), Ahn Jae-hyun (34th, Korea Exchange), and ‘promising star’ Park Gyu-hyun (179th, Mirae Asset Securities).

Coach Joo Se-hyuk of the men’s national team said, “It’s unfortunate that we’re meeting China earlier than expected, but they’re an opponent we have to fight with at least once anyway.

We’ll do our best at home,” and added, “As this is a tournament where once we lose, it’s over, we’ll play with the determination that every game will be the final.” He said.

Meanwhile, the women’s national team led by coach Oh Gwang-heon received a tough match, meeting China in the quarterfinals as a result of the tournament draw held the previous day.
